This Week's Crushes.

Crushes are links to things I'm into for the week that may or may not be beauty related - a blog I've recently discovered and want to rave about, a youtube video that blew me away, some awesome info I picked up, a song that's been on repeat on my ipod, and anything else I'm loving and I want you guys to know about!

BeautyByJJ's Favorite Lip Combinations (beauty video) -  I love lipsticks, particularly bright pink ones. As a woman of color, it sometimes takes an extra step or two to make those bright pink lippies work for me. Jennie came right in and listed her favorite lip combinations, including some of those lighter shades. By the end of the video, I ended up with a list of new liners and glosses to help me out with my bright lip obsession.

BlogTrends (blog) - I'm a complete novice in the world of blogging, so I'm constantly looking for tips, tricks, and ideas on how to work with mine. Over the past few weeks, Blog Trends has been a tremendous help for me in this crazy new world. Not only is there a website with oodles of information, there's also a Twitter chat that goes on every Monday night where everyone interacts and discusses the week's topic.

EyeXluvXmakeup (beauty guru) - one of the first youtube makeup gurus i ever watched was krishna. she's been on a super long break from youtube (she says 8 months, but it feels more like 2 years to me), but has finally come back into the game with a look inspired by the shop mac cook mac collection. i've missed her and i hope she stays around for good.

Frank Ocean (music video) - If you know me, you'll know I'm not a big fan of R&B. I mean I'll listen to it if it's there, but I don't usually go on a hunt to find new music in the genre. I can thank Jay Z and Kanye West's "No Church In The Wild" for introducing me to Mr. Ocean and actually making me WANT to hear some R&B on my iPod.

Zoella (blog) - I just love this girl's blog - the style, the feel, her picture editing, all of it. Since I started my blog I've always looked for new beauty blogs to see how everyone else does their thing. She's definitely an inspiration for me.
